Sorry, its Middle English or nothing (lets hear it for the Great Vowel Shift):

Original: Birdes of a fether flok together

New: Foles (Fools, closest I could find to "Dork")of a fether getheren* togader.

*sorry, the closest Chaucer came to Grokking was what he and a sheep herder's daughter did in the stable

Now you're talking.

Speaking of nerdes, do you go to those medieval festivals and dress up as a knight?

Say it ain't so!

As a matter of fact I do. Here's a clip from last year's historical re-enactment:

Nah. That's a picture of Rob from his days in secondary school as a Hall Monitor (They take things like that a whole lot more seriously than we do)

Serialously:

I had a classmate in grad school who went annually. She kept her hair as long as Donna Godcheaux's just for the occasion.

Pretty scary.

But they said that all the horse manure.
